The Los Angeles Lakers will not be heavily focused on the 2020 NBA Draft, as they are expected to have one of the last few picks in the first round of the draft, but one area that they can address a major need is at the point guard position. Two players that the Lakers may have to trade up to try to get could be Kira Lewis Jr. out of Alabama and Theo Maledon from France. Both players are expected to go in the earlier part of the first round of the 2020 NBA draft, but both could be incredible upgrades at the point guard position for the Lakers.

One name that has recently popped up as a potential faller in the draft is Nico Mannion from Arizona University. Nico Mannion had a good freshman year as the Arizona’s guard, but not enough to make him a surefire lottery pick. If Mannion does fall to 29, the Los Angeles Lakers should draft him and let him develop as a new playmaker off the bench along with Alex Caruso, Quinn Cook, Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley.

Tre Jones from Duke is one of the most experienced and reliable point guards in the draft this year. Tre Jones could fall anywhere from the late first round to the middle of the second round. The Los Angeles Lakers could use a smart point guard like Tre Jones to bring some playmaking ability off the bench. Another veteran point guard that is going to be available near the end of the first round for the Los Angeles Lakers is Cassius Winston of Michigan State. He is a bit turnover prone but could still provide a lot of value for a team like the Lakers that will be chasing a championship.
